Topping out ceremony at new school campus

11 April 2019

A topping out ceremony at the new £13.6 Kisharon School campus marked a milestone in the building project.

A ceremonial pouring of concrete took place on the spot where, by next year, up to 72 children will benefit from a state-of-the-art building custom made for the needs of people with learning disabilities.

The ceremony was watched by Kisharon Trustee Andrew Loftus who has sourced architects, designers and building firms experienced in creating environments for people with special needs.

He said: “With our goal of creating this amazing new school getting ever closer, I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved so far – not only for the huge effort they’ve put in, but also for having shared in the passion that we have for the building of this school.”

The new school campus will have four dedicated educational units including an early years assessment unit, an area for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities and an autistic zone. On-site facilities will include a multi-purpose school hall, therapy rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, a synagogue and a multi-purpose hall.

Kisharon Chairman Philip Goldberg said: “We are thrilled to reach this important milestone in the development of our much-anticipated new school campus. As we bring our talented team together we pay tribute to the wider team who have invested so much in support of Kisharon’s efforts to deliver excellence in education in our state of the art new facilities.”
